The bible says in Psalm 65:11, “You crown the year with Your goodness, and Your paths drip with abundance.” (NLT) And that became my declaration as I walked through my neighborhood praying and announcing to the spiritual airwaves and to my soul that GOD has the last word on my life, the final say on this year. He crowns my life and He crowns my year with GOODNESS. With abundance. One bible version of this passage reads that His paths drip with fatness!
I would not be true to myself nor to my Lord if I let a pandemic or politics or anything else steal the glory of this year. Remember this life is a fight of faith, my friends. Together, let’s declare and announce and decree that 2020 belongs to the Lord and that 2022 is going to be better than we can even imagine. Let’s usher this year out with thankfulness and the new year in with praise.
“What mighty praise, O God, belongs to you in Zion… You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth.” Psalm 65: 1, 5
*I originally wrote this blog to close out 2020 - but it's still so appropriate as we head into 2022. I pray you will be encouraged to pray and declare that God will have the last word on your 2021. - Laura Woodworth

What’s your dream? I pray you will be inspired and encouraged to pursue all God has for you. Now, more than ever, we need people of faith to go, do and become the light for the world.
